Monkey Business
Printer Friendly Version

   Just to shake it up a bit, the following information is from a column by Gene Weingarten of the Washington Post Writers Group. As a long-standing journalist, it’s probably difficult for Weingarten to accept the “citizen” journalists, a.k.a. online bloggers/writers who use, as he refers to, “savagely spaded” language. Weingarten researched all of these “expressions,” first collected and sent to him by Harry Lauder. He found these inept phrases appear online at least 10,000 times.
   
   “Self of steam”
   “Pedal stool”
   “Hammy downs”
   “Lack toast intolerant”
   “Mind grain headaches”
   “Blood presser”
   “80 HD” (as in ADHD)
   “Minus well” (as in might as well)
   
   Here’s the kicker – a recipe that called for “prosciutto” printed more than once on the Internet:
   
   “Crumble bread sticks into a mixing bowl. Cover with warm water. Let soak 2 to 3 minutes or until soft. Drain. Stir in prostitute, provolone and pine nuts.”
